FeedbackFruits Blackboard-integrated tool suite is an all-in-one solution to boost student engagement and collaboration in any course setting. This post introduces their Automated Feedback tool.
Automated Feedback is an AI powered feedback tool for student papers. This tool serves as guide for students, letting them see smaller issues in their writing before submission. Students can use Automated Feedback prior to submitting their papers for a grade to locate and address redundant words, word count, and even number of references used in their paper. Automated Feedback allows faculty to view the recommendations provided to each student, saving time by not needing to manually scan papers for small errors.
TILT is also happy to share some Automated Feedback updates. First, Feedback Fruits has released new features to Automated Feedback. These features aim to address several common issues students encounter while writing, such as Passive Voice, Past/Present Tense, and even if citations were used correctly. Students can also tell Automated Feedback how accurate it’s feedback is. Since Feedback Fruits uses AI for Automated Feedback, the system’s accuracy improves with each students’ opinion.
Second, TILT is happy to provide faculty with TILT Templates for Automated Feedback. These templates allow faculty to setup feedback activities in Blackboard with little effort. Simply request a template from TILT, setup the assignment in Blackboard, and choose the TILT Template when starting. TILT Templates can be used as is or edited to fit your needs. You may request 4 different templates:
- Basic – This template is meant to reflect the basic writing skills FHSU students are expected to demonstrate.
- Segmented – This template comes with pre-designated sections. Simply, rename the sections to your desired titles or add new sections, and Automated Feedback will determine if student submissions follow your desired structure.
- Research Article – This template comes with all you need for a standard research article: pre-assigned segments (Introduction, Lit Review, Methods, etc.), Reference Count, and grammar criteria.

Finally, TILT is also excited to highlight additional features in Feedback Fruits.
